Kirwan's story is an excellent study on how we hurt ourselves the most by carrying grudges for decades. By the time Meaghan reaches out to her estranged father, it's too late. The man she once knew is lost to elderly dementia.
Further, Impervious take small town secrets and gossip and turns the stereotype on its ear. From the president of the city council who's literally a wicked b***h of a witch to Meaghan's fairy assistant (and I don't mean he's homosexual), each reveal cracked me up.
And finally, Kirwan tackles second chances. Whether it's Meaghan's career, her relationship with her family, or her love life, I rooted for her the whole way. At fifty, you're tired and worn out and you really question whether it's worth putting the energy into something or someone that's just like the last thing that broke your heart. But I really wanted the heroine to try again!
If you want story that has plenty of action as well as a deep emotional tug, check out Impervious. (It's worth it for the scene alone where Meaghan takes out an evil wizard in her brother's kitchen. Bruce Willis couldn't have done it better!)
You see the town of Eldrich is a magical gateway with supernaturals living alongside the humans there and it just so happens they need a strong presence who can mediate and when called for step up and take charge. Now that's a problem as those wielding magic can get up to all sorts of nasty tricks but what if someone couldn't be forced? What if someone could make a stand, rattle a few cages and all whilst not being manipulated ? Now that would be something wouldn't it? Oh yes things are about to change in Eldrich as Meaghan like her father before her is impervious to magic!
I really enjoyed this book and I've now learnt it's the first of what's planned as a seven book series. This gives the author time to explore her characters and let them grow and all whilst opening up this world she has created. It was very entertaining with its small town feel and I loved seeing the dynamics between characters play out. Witches, fairies and dark wizards all feature here but it's the family connections that bring the most emotion. Not exactly a romance but the dominoes are set up so let's see how they fall in subsequent books. Perhaps a slower pace than some books I've read if I'm brutally honest but when the action starts its a fabulous ride! Loved loved loved an older heroine and can't wait to see what happens next because clearly big changes are coming !
Meaghan is an awesome heroine. Her mystical power is that she has no mystical power. Her hair is white, not due to magic, but because she is 50 years old. Her knees hurt when she is forced to kneel. Her weapon of choice is a well-made saucepan. Her estranged father has Alzheimer's disease, and she must deal with him just as any of us would. Her 'brave new world' is scary, funny, horrifying, and beautiful. The people of Eldrich are also scary, funny, horrifying, and beautiful. Kirwan plans on seven books. I will happily buy every book
